Hi elaine77

I would make it and freeze until needed. That way you will be sure the cream will be fresh.

Bring the ganache to room temperature the day before it will be used. You may need to gently bring it back to working consistency in the microwave. Warm the ganache on medium temperature for a few seconds at a time, mix to even out the warmth.

If you have cool weather, it can be made up and refrigerated and kept well away from strong smelling foods. 🙂
